On 31 January 1941, with Libra in company, Lupo attacked British convoy AN 14, en route to Piraeus. Despite the escort of three destroyers Lupo was able to torpedo the tanker Desmoulea, which was unable to complete her journey. The disabled Desmoulea was towed to Bombay, where she remained as a stationary store ship for the rest of the war.

In May 1941, Lupo was charged with escorting a convoy of 20 caiques and other small vessels transporting some 2,300 German troops to Crete, as reinforcements to the German paratroop assault on the island. On the night of 22/23 May the convoy was intercepted by a British force of three cruisers (HMS Dido, Orion, and Ajax)[7] and four destroyers. To cover the escape of the convoy Lupo attacked the British vessels, firing her torpedoes and laying smoke. She came under heavy fire, and was hit by 18 large calibre shells, though only three exploded. Lupo passed through the British force, avoiding collision with a cruiser, and escaped, leaving the British force in some confusion (Orion reported damage from friendly fire as the cruisers tried to hit Lupo). The British force went on to chase down and sink eight of the caiques, but were left short of ammunition from the night action and were forced to withdraw before dawn; Lupo was able to return to the scene and rescue many of the survivors. Six caiques managed to slip away

On 30 November 1942 Lupo, in company with three sister ships under command of Corvette Captain Giuseppe Folli, left Naples to escort the merchant ships Veloce and Chisone to Tripoli. A third ship, the tanker Devoli, detached herself from the convoy to Trapani. On 2 December the convoy was attacked by aircraft from Malta; Veloce was hit twice and set on fire. While the other ships continued, Lupo stood by the sinking Veloce to render assistance to the survivors. The two vessels were eventually found south of the Kerkennah bank by a force of four destroyers which were tracing the convoy, led by HMS Jervis. Lupo was quickly overwhelmed by gunfire from the destroyers; Lupo sank in a few minutes, and the blazing wreck of Veloce followed shortly after. Aretusa, aware of the destroyers' attack, shepherded Chisone to Tripoli, while Ardente headed to the wreck site at dawn. She rescued 29 men from a crew of 164 officers and ratings.
